Rowley, Lucy A. (8 APR 1913 - 12 SEP 1920)
Lucy Ann Rowley, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. K. Rowley, was born in the town of Dover, Racine Co., on April 18, 1913. When but a baby of seven months she came with the family to their present home on the farm in the town of Loyal, Clark County, Wis., where she has spent seven happy years.
On Aug. 25th Lucy was taken sick with what was thought to be the measles. Complications developed rapidly and on Sept. 3 she was taken to the Marshfield Hospital for an operation on the throat. While at the hospital it was found that her symptoms indicated scarlet fever. This, with the attendant complications, caused her death at an early hour on Sunday morning Sept. 12, 1920. The body was brought to Loyal, where, on account of the contagious nature of the disease, a private burial took place at the cemetery on Monday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. Rev. E. Knaak officiated at the service.
Lucy leaves a father and mother, two brothers and a sister, besides many relatives and friends. She has gone to join her brother, Donald, who preceded her to the better world at little more than two years ago.
